New York Yankees vs Tampa Bay Rays Prediction

I’ll take a stab on the Rays. Probably not touching it in reality, though. Eflin is just 1-2 in his last two starts with nine earned in 12.0 combined innings in two of those three games (6.0 clean innings in the other). As for Stroman, he’s coming off five earned in 5.0 innings against the Reds in his last start.

On Tuesday the Rays got quieter after their four-run first inning (featuring a three-run shot from Isaac Paredes) on offense. Pitching-wise there were a couple of rough bullpen performances as well. That said, there’s no reason to think Tampa Bay can’t beat a flailing Yankees squad again Wednesday.
